This is Greatest Speeches of Humankind!

What made the experience of listening to The Greatest Speeches of Great Women the most enjoyable?

These are the actual speeches, recorded at the time. Some are a little screechy, but all are thought provoking.

Any additional comments?

This should be required "listen to" in social studies!

Disappointing recording quality and structure.

I was really disappointed by this audiobook. The speeches are wonderful but seriously hindered by the recording quality and the lack of introduction between them. You have no idea who is giving the speech (although you can work it out) and in what context it is being given or to whom. I think this book needs to be redone and narrated by professionals with professional recording. Yes it's sad not hear to the originals but the terrible sound quality for many of them was just too distracting.
